Frasier Thomas

Statement

I don’t want to force anything into my work, it has to be natural, unless it is obviously forced. My process is impulsive and considered. I like contradiction. I like when something is off and awkward. When something is on the edge of looking wrong; or just looks wrong. There is a link between drawing and painting. My drawing informs my painting and vice versa. I recycle, evolve and merge together characters and motifs that I carry throughout my work. I find satisfaction in things that do not fit together. When you can’t tell if someone is joking or serious. Confusion, distrust. For a work to be finished it has to be on the edge of being good/bad, me liking it/not liking it. The work is unsure.
